Review: Power Support Anti-Glare Film For MacBook Pro

I’ve had my MacBook Pro for a couple of weeks now and the glare from the glossy screen can be annoying at times. So I was really happy when I tripped over a product from Power Support that looks like it mitigates the problem. They make an anti-glare film that claims to cut down the glare without affecting the color quality of the screen, and having used some of their products in the past, I decided to give this a shot. Applying the film is tricky, but doable. Just make sure you take your time and follow the directions that come with the product. So once it’s on, how does it work? It really cuts down on the glare and now my MacBook Pro is closer to the MacBook Pro with the matte screen that it replaced. It is slightly on the fuzzy side, but not objectionably so. Your mileage may vary though. I also note that fingerprints are a non-issue with this film as well. A welcome bonus.

At $35, it’s not a cheap solution. But until Apple gets a clue decides to offer a matte screen option on their entire MacBook line, I think that this is a good solution for those who can’t stand the glossy screen. Also, it’s cheaper than the option of sending your MacBook to a company called TechRestore so that they can install a matte screen (which if you go that route may have warranty implications).
